Jessica Kirson is a powerhouse on stage. She’s a hilariously relatable performer of sheer silliness, vulnerability, and ridiculous characters. Her countless comedic character videos have racked up over 30 million views on social media. Her audience is multigenerational, creating an excuse for large groups of friends and families to spend a night out together. In an era where only 10% of all touring comedians are female, Jessica stands out as one of the strongest comedians regardless of gender. As her friend Dave Attell says, “I’d hate to follow her.”
Jessica’s new one-hour special Talking to Myself is executive produced by Bill Burr and will debut on Comedy Central on December 6th. This past year, Jessica was featured playing herself on the HBO series Crashing with Pete Holmes. She recently served as a consultant, producer, and writer as well as acted in the Robert De Niro film The Comedian. She is a regular on This Week at the Comedy Cellar, has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The View, and Kevin Can Wait. Jessica also hosts the Relatively Sane podcast and has interviewed the likes of Gary Gulman, Carney Wilson, Jim Gaffigan, and others.
She was recently awarded “Best Female Comic” by the MAC association in New York City and received the prestigious Nightlife Award for “Best Stand-up Comedian.” In her spare time, Jessica is a regular contributor to The Howard Stern Show, where she produces and stars in prank calls for the program.
